More than 200 people attended Playworks of Michigan’s “Get in the Game” to celebrate thousands of Michigan students’ access to safe and healthy play every day. The energetic evening was held at the Beacon in Detroit and included a combination of popular recess games, dinner, cocktails, silent auction and inspiring stories. The Game Changer Award was presented to the Detroit Lions. Amy Modica received the Educator of the Year Award, and Detroit Lion Miles Killebrew was honored with the Recess Hero Award. Proceeds from the event totaled over $100,00 for the cause.
